How do you ensure quality of your housekeepers?

Our cleaners are interviewed at our office to ensure the suitability of the applicant.

What about damages?

Although we are fully insured most of our cleaners work with us on subcontractors' basis. In such occasion your cleaning lady will be responsible for to undertake to replace or repair the damaged item.
